Dennis served in the Marine Corps from 1966-1968. He worked for Ramsey County for 30 years as a social worker, and served as Child Protection Supervisor and later Adult Protection Supervisor. He was devoted to his job and wanted to make a difference in the lives of those he served. After retirement, he worked as a court visitor for Ramsey and Hennepin Counties. Dennis was known for his love of gardens; his own or any he could visit while traveling. He loved Red Wing pottery, and writing anything from court reports to rules for the kids.
